Personal profile


I am a lecturer in Applied Mathematics, with a focus on Industrial Modelling.

Having obtained a D.Phil. from the University of Oxford, I was a postdoctoral researcher at Oxford (2006-09, with Jon Chapman), Harvard (2010-12, with L. Mahadevan) and at the Graphene Research Centre in the National University of Singapore (2012-14, with Vitor Pereira). I was appointed to my present post in June 2014.

Research interests

My main research interests are in continuum elasticity, especially where the objects of interest are thin (i.e., plate and shell theory). Among such objects are atomically thin materials like graphene and molybdenum disulfide, and I am particularly interested in how strain couples with electronic transport in such systems.

More broadly, I am interested in the mathematical modelling of industrial problems and biological systems where mechanics (or force, or deformation) play a significant role.

Please see my website for a more detailed overview.
